Pinus elliottii, commonly known as slash pine, is a conifer tree in the South-eastern United States. Slash pine is named after the "slashes" – swampy ground overgrown with trees and bushes – that constitute its habitat. Other common names include swamp pine, yellow slash pine, and southern Florida pine. Historically, slash pine has been an important economic timber for naval stores, turpentine, and resin. Slash pine is known for its unusually high strength, especially for pine. It exceeds many hardwoods and is even comparable to very dense woods such as ironwood. This tree is fast-growing, but not very long-lived by pine standards (to 200 years). It reaches heights of 18–30 m with a trunk diameter of 0.6–0.8 m. The tree also makes an interesting Bonsai specimen.
